Help Grow the Jewish Lending Library in Nigeria

Evan Green from Quebec Leaves for Nigeria in 10 Days:
Help Donate Jewish Religious Items
Sent by Jack Zeller of Kulanu

Dear Kulanu friends,

Remy Ilona is starting a lending library so that we can stretch the books we send around more effectively. Many of the communities are so far apart, e.g. from one end of Abuja to another it is 50 miles, so we still need books for individual synagogues to also have libraries.

On a very positive note, Remy has a large collection thanks to Joel Levitt who celebrated his Bar Mitzvah by asking that all presents be books and Jewish ritual support so that he could help Remy get started.

He has been obtaining enormous resources from synagogues in Quebec; often synagogues collect tallit that are not new but too good to do away with and they may well be able to contribute! Evan Green is leaving in 10 days for Nigeria. He goes often for his work. I convey his message that he is eager to bring tallit, teffilin, shabbat candles and mezzuzot. If anyone wants to send him any of the above that they want to contribute please mail to:
